Crypta’s Latest Single Highlights “The Other Side of Anger” Ahead of Shades of Sorrow Release


With just a few days left before the release of their sophomore album Shades of Sorrow, ascendant Brazilian death metal outfit Crypta dropped their third (and likely final) single, “The Other Side of Anger.”

Rather than showcase the song with a flashy video with some overarching narrative, this quartet of badasses decided to break it all down with an in-studio recording of them performing that track. Bassist/vocalist Fernanda Lira said the band chose this track as one of the album’s singles because of its ability to highlight a different facet of the band’s overall sound.

“With the third single we wanted to show one more side of the album! ‘Lord of Ruins’ brought the melodies that permeate the whole record, ‘Trial of Traitors’ has the aggressiveness and a fast pace and with ‘The Other Side of Anger’, we wanted to show the more gloomy, slow paced side of the record!”

Shades of Sorrow will be released on August 4 via Napalm Records, but you can preorder your copy today. For more information on the album, including the tracklist and variants, be sure to check out the rest of the page below the video.
